Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was disappointed with the scoreline after his side could only manage a draw away at West Ham United.
The Citizens continue their struggle against teams in the top six as they fail to move closer to leaders Leicester City.
"It [a draw] was not what we wanted before the game," Pellegrini told Sky Sports.
"If you analyse the whole game we had two or three clear chances. It was a difficult game - I was not happy the way we conceded the second goal.
"It was a close game for both teams and a good game for both sets of fans. It was end to end because both teams play in an attacking way."
Asked about injuries, the Chilean explained: "Sergio Aguero played very well and scored. I think he is 100% again.
"Vincent Kompany needs a couple of weeks more."
